Hail England! 

England Football delivered many top 2018 World Cup highlights, earning a well-deserved spot in the final four. The unhappy might best celebrate national achievement & cooperative success.

But will Frustration instead characterize this well-played campaign? In the midst of Brexit, surely an arrogant clique is dissatisfied England can't dictate rules nor select the referee.

Let's quash & forestall Fexit: don't contemplate quitting football's governing association FIFA so England can nobly play with itself.

Post-Fexit England: "Have balls, Need partner(s)"

Captain Kangaroo for Boris?

Boris Johnson is finished as UK Foreign Secretary.

America May Beckon...

Like David Beckham's twilight appearances with soccer Los Angeles, Boris Johnson can sell his skills in Britain's former colonies.

We in New England, USA, weaned on the daily morning children's show "Captain Kangaroo," are ready for a remake - bumbling Boris fits the bill.

Boris Johnson's lovely Bullingdon Club elocution will please the colonial ear, and it's elegantly humorous to imagine Boris may be labeled Aussie (Captain Kangaroo had no clear relationship to Australia; the name references his big pockets).

Welcome Boris - Our People Need Laughter too!

Belligerant Americans

Watching television news in the USA is miserable. Too many commercial messages. Too little news, served in tiny chunks, along with "human interest" narratives and partisan political posturing.

One point is clear from the networks I watched: social problems are too often presented as partisan political debates, rather than as unambiguous issues requiring a community solution and professionally-applied corrective measures.

Americans: please get together to define social problems.

Americans: please look beyond partisan politics to those manipulating your outlook.

We can solve our problems by cooperating.

We can only solve our problems by cooperating.

Republican Outrage

I don't like Trump, I don't like Hillary Clinton.

Especially I don't like George W. "Baby Bush"...

His smirking face is completely repulsive. But worse, Republican Party high crimes surrounding Bush were plain to see -- long before the "smash & grab" of Trump and associates.

Republican strategy during the 2004 Bush - Kerry election contest showed cruel cynicism, rudely dismissing American patriots and sacrifices.

During the Vietnam War, George W. Bush served domestically in the Texas National Guard with some distinction. He was criticized for prolonged absences. Bush family political leverage kept him from harm.

John Kerry, (who's not terribly likable either), went to Vietnam as a US Naval officer. Kerry was deployed in combat areas, his unit attracted enemy fire, he was wounded, he was decorated for heroism.

Bush, comparatively, was a snot-nosed silver-spoon trust fund baby.

So Republican strategist schemed to tear-down their opponent. Kerry's military record was questioned, and his decorations for VALOR were deliberately tarnished (links here & here).

Sullying American military service records for temporary political gain is unacceptable. Many of my friends & relatives honorably served in America's military, including my brother, father, and grandfather. Scheming politicos belittling servicemember's risks and sacrifices is wrong, outrageous, and deeply offensive.

America's Republicans have NO honor.

Today's Trump Republicans and Murdoch media loudly claim the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) has strong political bias. Americans grow more insecure as the President and his underlings cultivate widening institutional distrust.
